A nice feature (paid version) is that you can program a bullet offset, if you use multiple weight and MV combos....especially in conjunction with range buddy which gives you the offset. The ballistic calc is also helpful if you are for instance considering a new bullet to go LR and want to see...
The amount of loads you get out of brass is probebly also dependant on case brand as composition differs. I read an article a while back that had a comparative chart where the top performer (most loads) was Norma with over 20 loads and a close second being Lapua.
I anneal after every shot and...
Not sure what speeds your nodes was at and I haven't tried the 140 AB yet but my old Husqvarna with 24" barrel loves the 140 gr Partitions with nodes at 2800 and 2900 fps .... shoots 1/2 MOA's. I normaly start off with a 0.039" jump on load development. Norma brass also seems to work well...
just some feed back after shooting a couple over the chrony
Case - Norma @ trimmed to 63.0 mm

Chrony @ 5m
O.A.L = 83.85
69.5 gr @ 2597, Es=31

as everyone said, stay away from the shoulder or any large bones for that matter. Chances are you will not get propper penetration anyways.
This was a kill shot with my 70 pound Destroyer 350 at 40 yards shooting Shuttle T-Locks, on some one else's impale ram. He took a foolish shot quarter...
Thank you for the worm welcome DrMike
Regarding pressure spikes: Yes, sticky bolt lift and I can see some impressions of the bolt face on the case. I have a suspicions that this might be as a result of secondary ignition as the case might not create a proper seal with the "low" load. I am a bit...
Thank you, appreciate the replay.
I'm not chasing speed on this one as this is for a bush load, say up to 200m. Ideally I hope to achieve the slower node with reasonable case fill %
Will definitely give H4831sc a shot or two as an alternative.
Hi to all from SA, new to this forum but new to the reloading diction.
I'll be grateful if some one can give me some guidance for loads on the above.
I did a quick search and found some data for the Accubond but unfortunately not the Partition
My setup as follow:
Rifle - Howa 1500 in 338 WM...
